If you want informed help, you need to provide your system specs, so we can all know how to help you better.

To answer your questions tho....

Yes, you can overclock it. However, since each motherboard is different, it is very difficult to tell you how to overclock it.

Some general things to note:

Overclocking can be dangerous, will most likely shorten the lifespan of your RAM, and only offers approximately 2-5% more performance, at best.

If you are overclocking, you need to loosen the timings and CAS Latency to something like 3-3-3-8 before starting, so that your timings don't cause problems.

Do NOT set your voltage on your RAM to more than 2.8. Anything more can easily burn out your RAM.

You will need to look into your FSB:RAM ratio, since you are already overclocking the processor, all you need to do is change the FSB:Memory ratio. You need to be very careful though. Too much of a change in your memory ratio can result in burning out the RAM.

For further answers, your best bet would be to use google and do a search on overclocking your ram with your motherboard. You'd be surprised at the results you get.

Good luck with it if you try it! Let us know how well you do!
